COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This brown ale has a marked ruby brown colour with a generous and lasting head. It has a distinctive aroma reflecting the wide range of ingredients used in its production. The fruitiness resulting from its fermentation blends harmoniously with a dominant liquorice and caramel flavour. The body is decidedly malty. The bitterness is the result of a complex alchemy between the fine hops and special malts used. These give St Feuillien Brune a typical dark chocolate appearance.

Bottle. Yep, it’s brown (well named). Muddy, reddish and almost rust-colored. The tight fizzy head-boiled away fairly quickly. The aroma is tart, but the beer drinks much more mellow. There’s a bit of an underlying tartness, but generally I found this sweet and malty, even with a hint of smoky nuttiness. (#3143, 10/14/2007)

BREWMUSKCLES (2686) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2007
foamy root beer like light brown head that tastes of alcohol and is only moderately substantive. beer and head settles SOMEWHAT QUICKLY down to a mainly raisin and malty brew that is moderately sweet and slick. a difference is that this belgian settles down nicely is earthy and actually is A bit refreshing. +2 points for that. couple minutes and the alcohol recedes appreciably, and a fruit aroma appears.

downender (8659) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2007
330ml bottle. Deep brown with a big beige head. Aroma of toffee, dates and prunes. Flavour of cloying sweet caramel with a deeply stewed aftertaste. Not my cup of tea.

badgerben (5178) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 4, 2007
Brown color with a large head. A little orange aroma. Strong, malty flavor with ample sugar. A bit of bitterness towards the end to spare it from being cloying. Nice.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 4, 2007
Brown with massive head. Plenty of fruit and caramel malt in the aroma and body. From a cellars tasting.

JK (6158) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 1, 2007
A nice, classic dubbel. Dark brown with sediment and a nice cream colored head. Lots of sweet malt, brown sugar, and yeast. Some fruit. Very good palate.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 27, 2007
On tap at Belgo Camden, 12th August 2007. Looks great in the glass - dark reddish amber with a small foamy head which leaves good lacing. Nice aroma of spices, orange peel, burnt sugar and biscuity malt. The malt dominates the flavour I feel, which is a pity. The palate is smooth and full. Like the blonde, good stuff, but not a world beater.

Rune (12760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 24, 2007
330ml bottle. Pours an attractive deep red-brown body settled under a creamy, off-white head. Gives a fragrance of late berries and riped fruit. The taste has got a sweet malty character with the support of caramel and biscuit added by a spicy touch (pepper) and notes of plums. It is all offset by soft yeasty tartness at a rather dry ending (06.08.2007).
